Last week, I wrote about the themed ornaments I made for each of my grandchildren (https://crapsmanship.com/2017/10/15/mixed-media-ornaments/). In an effort to DIY much of my Christmas, I also made each child a box that corresponded to the ornament I made. For example, Kelsey’s angel ornament will go in an angel box. Below each picture, I will list the items I used to make each.
An empty Brie cheese box, gold acrylic paint, scrapbook paper, sheet music, black fine-point pen, heart jewel, red watercolor paint, letter stamps, and ModPodge
An empty checkbook box, brown Distress crayons, white card stock, a black fine-point marker, and ModPodge
A purchased jewelry box, sheet music, red acrylic paint, black card stock, gold scrap paper, white felt, ModPodge, and letter stamps (under Santa’s beard are the words “Be Good”!)
A purchased jewelry box, blue and purple Distress inks, white card stock, scrapbook paper, black and orange sharpies, red Distress marker, buttons, a small pompom, and ModPodge
A purchased jewelry box, green and blue Distress inks, brown craft paper, green scrapbook paper, red Distress marker, white paint pen, and ModPodge
An empty greeting card box, sheet music, white gesso, scrapbook paper, washi tape, gift box stickers, snowflake stickers, string a Christmas lights, diamond gems, and ModPodge.
And here are the same boxes with their ornament they will hold. I can’t wait to see the kids’ reactions!
